Meteoroid/space debris impacts on MSFC LDEF experimentsThe numerous meteoroid and space debris impacts found on AO171, AO034, S0069, and other MSFC experiments are examined. Besides those impacts found by the Meteoroid and Debris Special Investigative Group at KSC, numerous impacts of less than 0.5 mm were found and photographed. The flux and size distribution of impacts are presented as well as EDS analysis of impact residue. Emphasis is on morphology of impacts in the various materials, including graphite/epoxy composites, polymeric materials, optical coatings, thin films, and solar cells.
